As you're the first reporting that problem (for me there's no problem with pics in my weather skins) please post a link to a skin that doesn't show pictures so we can download and look into it.

It's not any other weather skins, it's only those skins that use the now defunct wxdata.com as a source. Nowadays, we use weather.com for it, and you can take a look at some skins that should work as we speak here or here.

Well that skin uses the weather feed which has been disabled for a long time, so it will defiantly not work.

Try installing one from this thread that are new and known to work.

Automatic updates are for Rainmeter program only, the skins need to be updated by the author for any changes that stop them from working correctly.
